"Fight The Formation" will instantly grip you by the virtual throat with its honest-to-bone drums and the high voltage waves of Illyah's old Hungarian oscillator. On top of that Candy's husky female vocal harmonies won't fail to send electrifying heebie-jeebies up and down your spine while the hookline is sure to haunt you for days! You have been warned!
"Poor Girl" comes from a more classical Dub angle. Around heavy offbeats Candy's harmonies are driven to mind-blowing perfection here, culminating in a fine spacy climax full of deepest deepness wherever you look.
Have echo-sex on this one!

An absolutely brilliant and unique take on the many genres this release floats between. Illyah's production skirts between dub and abstract downtempo, and Ltd. Candy brings a sense of soul in a way not often heard in a reggae. Dub anchors this, but it's emotion on the level of My Bloody Valentine that carries it. Considering it's their first release ever, a magnificent achievement.
